years ago found guilty of misconduct
with young girls in his charge and is

trial involving Mildred Bridges, a 17-year-old
Mrs. See has not lived with her
husband for nine years, she says. She
is opposed to absolute f aithism. The

endeen, had founded a new "See

about the conduct of the affairs of
the Real Egg Noodle Co., 211 Schil

him take daily from 50 to 75 papers
more than he could sell. "This is an
old stunt of the Hearst paper" ex
plained Servia. "The boys have to
pay for the papers whether they sell
them or not" The practice proves a
great aid in boosting "paid" circula
If a newsboy protests against hav
ing to "eat" so many extra papers
he is likely to suffer physically.
"When I refused to take so many
morethan I could sell the wagon
man, he tried to beat me up with a '
horse shoe," said Servia, in broken
Servia licked the wagon man
soundly. Then, he claims, they got
him down in the police captain's of
